An American treat
It is not gelato, but a good American substitute for a frozen treat. Frozen custard stands used to dot the roadsides all over the USA but seem to be a disappearing icon. I remember as a kid playing in Little League that when you won a game the whole team was treated to frozen custard at a local stand. That is just one of those summertime memories that are always a part of you.
Unfortunately many of the family stands have disappeared as people reject fresh and homemade for prepackaged bland products. I know of a few frozen custard stands around Northeastern Ohio and Rosati’s in Northfield has some of the best I know. Their custard is so dense they use a scoop to serve it. They have daily specials and on a warm summer day you will find people lined up as the girls quickly dish up the cool treats.
